    Finding vintage Mouton in the correct colour/fade, isn’t too difficult if you check out antique shops, vintage clothing shops, charity shops/thrift stores etc. But beware of cheaper Mouton coats that are made up of small pieces invisibly sewn together - a common practice in the furrier industry. Cutting out a piece and sewing it onto a G1 collar is a bit more difficult and probably best done by a tailor experienced in sewing fur. P.s. suitable pieces of mouton also come up on eBay from time to time - there’s a U.K. seller called fuguey who has a complete collar and a couple of pieces of mouton listed currently and another called dotsells who has listed a mouton coat.

    Search for a vintage "Beaver Lamb" coat. That'll make the best part of half a dozen or so collars. The skin is Sheep tanned and finished to resemble Beaver
    That's identical to WW2 USN Mouton and is what Aero used in the early years and I know John Chapman did the same, whether he still does or not, I'm not sure
